We're looking to do a few little "how-to" videos for internal use involving the proper way to use some software functions. Most of the videos will be 3 to 5 minutes and we want to record what we're doing onscreen as well as the voice instructions done at the same time. It would be important to edit the video (at least a little) after we shoot it. We expect to put the video on our internal server as opposed to posting to YouTube (though things change and this might be an option as well).

I use Camtasia a long time ago but it's on the pricey side for what we want to do. (I know I can download it for 30 days free and that may be a route we go.)

I was hoping someone have experience with another tool that might be cheaper or free.

Any thoughts?
